Factors Affecting Teaching and Learning in South African Public Schools
Makola Collin Phurutse

Analysing the extent and severity of HIV/AIDS among educators without looking at the broader context within which schools operate, provides only a partial understanding of the immense challenges facing the education sector in South Africa. This study examines material issues affecting the quality of teaching and learning in our schools, both within and external to the classroom environment. The findings reveal significant disparities in conditions, both within and between provinces. Compounded by the effects of ill-health related to HIV/AIDS, these disparities are likely to hamper any efforts to improve the quality of teaching and learning in South African public schools, and therefore require serious attention.

Families and Households in Post-apartheid South Africa
Families and Households in Post-apartheid South Africa
Socio-demographic Perspectives
Acheampong Yaw Amoateng, Tim B Heaton
Given that the institution of the family interfaces with other social institutions in any society, the political, social and economic transformations resulting through colonialism and apartheid in South Africa are likely to have affected families and their residential dimension, the household, for all cultural groups. But studies of families and households before the democratic transition in 1994 were limited by the political economy of apartheid in general, and more specifically, by inadequate quantitative socio-economic data.

Financing South Africa's National Health System through National Health Insurance
Financing South Africa's National Health System through National Health Insurance
Possibilities and Challenges (Colloquium Proceedings)
Compiled by Claire Botha and Michael Hendricks for the HSRC Policy Analysis Unit

The provision of universal access to healthcare, a right enshrined in the South African Constitution, is the responsibility of government. Although much progress has been made towards the creation of a national health system which makes 'access to health for all' a reality, much remains to be done.

Voices of Liberation
Don Pinnock

The struggle to free South Africa from its apartheid shackles was long and complex. One of the many ways in which the apartheid regime maintained its stranglehold in South Africa was through controlling the freedom of speech and the flow of information, in an effort to silence the voices of those who opposed it. United by the ideals of freedom and equality, but also nuanced by a wide variety of persuasions, the ‘voices of liberation’ were many: African nationalists, communists, trade-unionists, pan-Africanists, English liberals, human rights activists, Christians, Hindus, Muslims and Jews, to name but a few.

Fluid Rights
Fluid Rights
Water Allocation reform in South Africa
Synne Movik

This book gets to grips with the complexities of policy change in South Africa, asking how evolving doctrines and policies shape the way water use rights are conceptualised and governed. It offers an historical overview of the evolution of water resources policy and legislation, before going on to explore in-depth the process of formulating the Water Allocation Reform policy. This is then contrasted with an 'on-the-ground' case study that brings into relief the dynamics occurring at the policy level. The book offers a new perspective that emphasises the discursive construction of rights - how different principles are privileged in diverging discourses around scarcity, equity, efficiency and sustainability, and how such 'allocation discourses' are transformed at the local level by new processes of politics and power. The book sets these processes within the wider context of political and economic change in South Africa, and draws lessons for the broader experience of water policy and legislation in an international context. The book is aimed towards researchers, policymakers and practitioners and a broader international readership interested in water policy and development.

Fragments of Democracy
Fragments of Democracy
Nationalism, development and the state in Africa
Gavin Williams
Originally presented as a lecture, this occasional paper argues that definitions of democracy are incomplete and their meanings dependent on their historical context. The author illustrates his premise with examples taken from throughout Africa and reflects on development and debt, class and politics, African nationalism, multi-party elections, citizenship and accountability.

From Conflict to Negotiation
From Conflict to Negotiation
Nature-based development on the South African Wild Coast. Special edition
Robin Palmer, Herman Timmermans, & Derick Fay (eds)
From Conflict to Negotiation provides a South African case study of the shift from protectionism to sustainable devlopment in the 1990's. Located on the wild coast of the Eastern Cape, Dwesa-Cwebe consists of a nature and marine reserve with eight adjacent resident communities that have historically depended on local forest, grassland and coastal resources. This are has been the focus of one of the earliest efforts in the 'new' South Africa to restore to the Xhosa-speaking residents ownership of the protected area from which they had been excluded for decades. Unusually the resident initiated the process.
